SHI lecture will share story of returned headdress

Sealaska Heritage will present a free lecture from a French anthropologist and visiting scholar at noon Wednesday in the Walter Soboleff Building.

The lecture by Marie Mauzé, Ph.D., will tell the story of how a British Columbia headdress belonging to the Kwakwak’awakw was repatriated in 2003. The headdress was confiscated by Canadian authorities in 1922 and returned to the U’Mista Culture Center in Alert Bay in 2003. Mauzé was instrumental in its return.
